Recalled Strollers Pose Fingertip Amputation, Laceration Hazards

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Graco Children's Products Inc., of Atlanta, Ga., has announced a voluntary recall 1.5 million units of the Passage™, Alano™, and Spree™ Strollers and Travel Systems.

The hinges on these strollers' canopy pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is opening or closing the canopy.

Graco has received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller's canopy hinge mechanism while the canopy was being opened or closed, resulting in five fingertip amputations and two fingertip lacerations.

This recall involves Graco Passage™, Alano™ and Spree™ Strollers and Travel Systems with the following model numbers and specific hinge mechanisms:
